The Royal Automobile Club 1000 Mile Trial 1000mt15

Brilliant afternoon at Croft Castle a National Trust property in Yarpole near Leominster Herefordshire.  The event being the Royal Automobile Club 1000 mile trial an event exclusively for Pre-War Cars organised by HERO Historic Endurance Rallying Organisation.  As the cars dated from the 1920s through to the 1930s our playing list reflected this, playing favourites such as ‘Crazy Rhythm’ written in 1928, ‘The Very Thought Of You’ 1934 written by Ray Noble and probably one of my favourite songs and many others.
And what a treat to be given the opportunity to pose with this Very Handsome Bentley driven by William Medcalf and Navigator Dan Harrison
